I Barocchisti, Diego Fasolis

Lugano Radio Orchestra (Choir)

Until it was revived in the late twentieth century, Handel's opera Faramondo was performed just eight times in London in 1738 and then fell into obscurity. According to the conventions of Italian opera of the period, men's roles were often written for women, in spite of the lack of dramatic realism, and the use of castrati was common, so higher voices strongly predominate. Handel wrote the title role, which would have gone to a castrato, usually a male alto, for Cafarelli, who had the range of a mezzo-soprano. This recording is exceptional in its use of countertenors in all the male roles, and it's intriguing to hear together the variety of voice types lumped together as "countertenors"; the singers here are distinctly males altos, mezzo sopranos and sopranos. The early twenty first century is blessed with an abundance of extraordinarily fine countertenors, and the singers on this recording are exceptional, with voices of great tonal fullness and purity, agility, and individuality. Max Emanuel Cencic (mezzo), Philippe Jaroussky (soprano), Xavier Sabata (alto), and Terry Wey in a role originally for a boy treble, deliver clearly differentiated performances, singing with dazzling assurance and vocal beauty. In the more "conventional" roles, soprano Sophie Karthauser, mezzo Marina de Liso, baritone Fulvio Bettini, and bass In-Sung Sim perform at the same high level of distinction, making this recording a feast for connoisseurs of coloratura singing. Diego Fasolis leads I Baroccchisti in a spirited, beautifully paced performance of great clarity and rhythmic punchiness. The opera has a silly plot, but the music is exceptionally attractive and a marvel of inventiveness, variety, and lyrical inspiration, and it deserves broader exposure. The sound is clean and warm, with a great sense of presence.

Faramondo, opera, HWV 39

Handel's last four operas were composed after his own opera company had folded, and the rival opera company, the Opera of the Nobility as it has come to be known, had also gone bankrupt. His rival Porpora had left the country, as had many of the singers that had sung in his previous opera productions. Faramondo was written for the opera productions of Heidegger at the Haymarket Theatre. Heidegger decided to continue to try to produce operas, but Handel now only supplied new works, and many of the productions staged were by other composers. Faramondo was the first of the final group of Handel works, and is a heroic opera, much along the lines of the operas which he composed for the old Royal Academy of Music. The libretto is by Apostolo Zeno, an opera seria great. Although the structure of the libretto is typical of many opere serie, the texts for the arias are not standardized, for the libretto was rather old at the time, and reflects older trends in libretto writing. Whoever adapted the Zeno libretto for Handel cut down on the amount of the recitative to such an extent that the story is almost unrecognizable. Although there is some good music in the opera, it was a complete failure, and did not please London audiences.

Caffarelli, a castrato star and former pupil of the renowned vocal teacher Nicola Porpora, performed in the title role, creating a sensation with his virtuosic singing. But the opera, premiered January third, 1738, only lasted a few performances, and then had to be pulled.

The opera opens with an extended tableaux that sets the stage for the story, and involves a curse of vengeance. The musical style of Handel's later operas is lighter, often using dance forms and idioms, and scored in a galant vein. The scoring in this opera is very carefully thought out. One of the highlights of the opera is the duet between Faramondo and his beloved Rosamonda as he courts her. First he sings to her of his love for her, and then she responds, accompanied by the flutes, offering him hope that she will return his love. There are no flutes in the score after this duet. Instead, the climax is crowned by the addition of two horns in the final coro. Faramondo was Handel's last attempt at an heroic opera seria. After this, his interest in a lighter style of music also led him to the inclusion of comedy and buffo elements in his operas. His audience was more middle class now, and chorus and orchestra writing was more to their taste than virtuosic castrati and the inane heroics of the opere serie of old.
